Scott Minerd, global chief investment officer of Guggenheim Partners, predicted that Bitcoin would continue deflating further during a recent interview with Bloomberg.
“I think it’s going to deflate further, and I think we are going to have something akin to the collapse of the internet bubble to have a chance to sort out who are the winners and who are the losers here. I don’t think we’ve fully flushed out the system yet,” Minerd said.
From a trader’s perspective, it makes sense to take advantage of an opportunity to see higher prices in the near term, according to Minerd. However, as an investor, he thinks that cryptocurrencies are under pressure “from a regulatory standpoint.” Furthermore, he has noted that there is no real institutional money to support it.
Speaking of the recent relief rally, Minerd opined that the Fed might not be as hawkish as advertised.
At the same time, the prominent investor says that it’s really hard to argue that the U.S. is not in a recession, countering Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s claims.
As reported by U.Today, Minerd predicted that the $8,000 level may end up being Bitcoin’s “ultimate bottom.” However, it should be noted that the investor made some inaccurate price predictions in the past.
